A full guide to Scotland's squad for Women's Euro 2017

A player-by-player break down of who will represent Scotland in the Netherlands.

Scotland will open their Euro 2017 campaign with a bang, taking on the Auld Enemy in the Netherlands on July 19.

It may be their first shot at the competition but they insist they are not going just to make up the numbers. They're confident they have a real shot at progressing through the rounds.

Here is a look at manager Anna Signeul's squad for the tournament.

Goalkeepers

Safe hands: Fay has kept goal for the Scots over the last two decades, becoming the country's record appearance holder.

Gemma Fay

CLUB: Stjarnan

The Scots' captain and record appearance holder is looking forward to her first taste of tournament action after many near misses with the national team.

The Glasgow City stopper has plenty of European experience with the Scottish champions but will have to be content with a back-up role in Holland.

Shannon Lynn

The Canada-born keeper helped Scotland record their first win over England in 34 years back in 2011. Will hope to push Fay for a starting slot.

Leanne Ross

(Glasgow City; 132/9; 36)
